The goal of First Baptist Church Missions Committee is to develop opportunities to for our members to grow in their faith by helping others. We become stronger by practicing mercy and justice. This work is at the heart of our church's mission statement, which sets our congregational goal to be an influence "at the intersection of the culture and the Kingdom of God."We seek to do this with a focus on urban outreach projects: providing meals for the hungry, job assistance to Slavic nationals, responding with aid to local and regional disasters, and by answering the needs of members in our church to ensure they do not alone or in silence.  For more information on mission-related activities or our Missions Committee, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Room in the Inn: Overnight Hosts Needed
FBCA partners with RITI twice a year to provide shelter for up to 12 women. Each week, a different congregation opens its facilities to welcome the women as guests, offering a warm safe place for them as they work hard to move forward to permanent housing. The simple goal is to keep women without homes from sleeping on the street and risking their safety. The greater goal is to build caring, supportive relationships with them, one week at a time. Volunteers needed for five teams: provide meals, over-night stay, set-up and break down, hosts, provide transportation.
